L.A based artist Lisa Moneypenny
turns propaganda of synthesized idealism on its ear.
Updating the ethos of a by-gone era to be more suited to a post modern world Moneypenny makes her mark on vintage portrait photos, Sears catalogs, and girl scout calendars. She also recreated paint by numbers sets of tattooed women complete with real paint and brushes. With her cheeky embellishments, Moneypenny insinuates a subversive tenor that gives the altered works a fetishistic flair. Cutsey figures are adorned with adult accoutrement and vice is added to a quaint family portrait. Her playful defiance also provokes a catharsis that shakes loose childhood memories of innocently dabbling with taboo.
Lisa Moneypenny has show her work at La Luz de Jesus, CoproGallery, Corey Helford, Thinkspace and The Hive.
